Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #250

March 2, 2017

Another puzzle from Dragoslav Andric’s 1981 book “Matni Udar”.


White to play and mate Black


Bronstein v Geller, URS Chmpship, Moscow 1961



I found the win 1 Rf7, which apparently is mate in 7; but missed the prettier move played in the game, 1 Qg6!, which is even faster.


Geller resigned. 1…fg 2 Rg7+ and 3 Ng6 mate.


The game, which is in Megabase, is worth playing through: a 20 move victory by Bronstein in the Nimzo-Indian.



4r1k1/pR3pp1/1n3P1p/q2p4/5N1P/P1rQpP2/8/2B2RK1 w – – 0 20
